• Title: Through the Night (밤편지)
  • Artist: IU
  • Runtime: 4:42   Language: Korean
  • Date: April 2, 2017

"Through the Night" is the newly released soft ballad and first single from IU’s upcoming album Palette. The lyrics were penned by IU herself.

In the lyrics, IU’s delicate vocals reminisce about the person she loves, who she feels so lucky to have met. She sings of being so in love that all of it cannot be expressed. Whenever she closes her eyes, she is taken to a faraway place, and she remembers the first kiss they shared. But she feels like this person will fade away and disappear, leaving her missing the one she loves.

The music video is heavy with emotion, subtly complementing the lyrics. IU sits on the floor, singing softly into a microphone. In the interchanging scenes, we see her in an airy room, reminiscing, as the lyrics suggest. There is a transition from day to night, with a corresponding shift in the feelings we see in her. During the day, where IU is in the light, she looks sometimes happy, but sometimes lonely. During the night, we begin to notice the loneliness and sadness in her eyes. She writes a letter, but in the end, it appears as though the letter was never sent, drawing us back to her mention of being unable to show all the love she has.

IU’s new album Palette is set to be released on April 21, 2017. Mark it down on your calendars and remember to listen out for more upcoming sweet tunes in IU’s angelic voice.
